NIH's Fogarty Center offers research training on global diseases

The Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health recently launched a new research training program with a focus on global infectious diseases.

The program has two parts: Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D43) (PAR-14-193) and Planning Grant for Global Infectious Disease Research Training Program (D71) (PAR-14-194).

Deadlines for D43 and D71 letters of intent are 30 days prior to the application due dates, which are July 29, 2015, and July 29, 2016.

U.S. institutions with a demonstrated collaboration with a researcher in low- and middle-income country institutions and foreign institutions in LMICs may apply for the D43 program. For the D71 program, applications may only be submitted by foreign institutions in LMICs as defined by the World Bank Classification system.

Training programs may include long-term training to support research and research administration, with the understanding that the focus of training and research will be in their country and may include medium-term training or mentoring, including specialized clinical, laboratory, research or administrative/business skills, and short-term training or mentoring that focuses on research methodology and lab skills needed to support research ethics and compliance issues, program and grant administration, financial management, grant writing, preparation of scientific manuscripts, data management and informatics.
